1INCH Listing Proposal [Stay Tuned]

Summary:

This is a proposal for adding the 1inch token (1INCH) to Compound.

Background:

1inch Network is arguably one of the most reputable and trusted ecosystems that unites decentralized protocols whose synergy enables the most lucrative, fastest and protected operations in the DeFi space.

1INCH is an ERC-20 utility & governance token, and the 1inch Network is governed by a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). 1inch is unique in that it provides instant governance for its users. This feature allows 1inch users to vote for specific protocol settings in the DAO model. The instant governance makes it easier for token holders to make changes to the protocol and circumnavigates many of the inefficiencies of many current DAO models.

Why 1INCH?

  1. Popularity

1INCH has been listed on Coinbase, Binance and other significant exchanges currently ranks in the top 100 of total coins by market capitalization. 1INCH has a flourishing community of over 200,000+ members across multiple online channels, as well as more than 178,000+ active wallets and 51,000+ token holders. We believe that the addition of our token to Compound will step up activity on the platform and provide a vast number of opportunities to the communities of both projects.

  1. Transparency

1INCH is an ERC-20 utility & governance token, and the 1inch Network is governed by a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). 1inch is unique in that it provides instant governance for its users. This feature allows 1inch users to vote for specific protocol settings in the decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) model.

  1. Liquidity

1INCH is at over $890M in market cap at the time of writing. It enjoys deep liquidity on both centralized and decentralized exchanges.

  1. Defi Adoption

1INCH is an active project in the Defi ecosystem and has already submitted applications to the MakerDAO and AAVE communities.

Safety & Next Steps

To ensure the safety of the Compound protocol, we must carefully manage risk. In this case, we can do this by fine-tuning the collateral factor, reserve factor, and borrowing limits for $1INCH.

1INCH Foundation would like to open up a discussion as to what the optimal initial values of these risk-related factors should be.

Once we come to a majority agreement on this, the $1INCH Foundation will create an autonomous proposal to be voted on by everyone.

So with respect to $1INCH, what do you think are optimal initial values for:

  • Collateral factor
  • Reserve factor
  • Borrowing limit

We look forward to receiving feedback from the community and moving forward with the future application, as we believe $1INCH would be a valuable addition to Compound with its reliable live price feeds, strong community interest, and sufficient market liquidity.

I’m supportive of this as I use 1inch.exchange almost every day.

Now there’s one thing that concerns me: 89% of the supply is held in the 1inch Foundation Multisig. Could you please point us to the outline of the tokenomics? Specifically about the distribution plan.

Other than that, 1inch is not currently supported by our price oracle so work needs to be done there. We’re using open oracles from Coinbase and OKEx which unfortunately support very few assets.

Thank you for the proposal! :slightly_smiling_face:

I support this proposal, 1inch is one of the few protocols with a true decentralized governance system in this moment.

agree support very few assets, isnt transparent and dont work well. I hope Chainlink integration will fix that
